under control. potentially. but listen to this. the democratic budget calls for $1 trillion in tax increases over the next 10 years. how are you going to grow an economy with that? and every working american is going to pay some of those taxes. let me ask you, let me ask you this. are you already not paying taxes through the roof? i am. property tax, sales tax, gas tax, state tax, city of new york tax, federal income tax, and almost everything i do in my leash time, rental cars, hotels, planes, all taxed as well. and the democrats want to add another trillion dollars in taxes? so we're quickly becoming sweden which has the highest tax rate in europe. u.s. corporate tax is already the highest in the world, already. and there is no doubt president obama wants to raise them even further. so, again, is this a sound economic policy? is this going to grow the economy in the u.s.a.? is it? finally, the president and the democratic party have failed to tell the american people exactly what programs they will cut in the future, if anymore. once again, there is no specific entitlement reform
don't know what the loop holes there. there's a notion that the oil companies don't pay any taxes. of course they pay bills -- billions and bills of tax. >> a number of republicans were grateful. well, at least they're not raising tax breaks. have they been so cowed and beaten down that they're grateful it's the only revenue enhancement are just closing loopholes, special breaks, allowances, deductions. >> still more money that guess out of the economy and doesn't have an impact. more importantly, though, it's still sold the same way. still taxing the rich corporations and rich americans who have unfair advantages. so it leaves the door open to another sort of tax the next go-around. i didn't think -- >> neil: i thought that was off the table. >> after you get $41 in tax hikes with one dollar in tax cuts. >> there is the argument that you have the ryan plan, the murray plan, maybe have two sides that could broach some differences but i see some chasm >> but it's a more hopeful tone on both parties. the democrats say now that, yes, we must have tax hikes, or tax something -- tax re
. >> your dog is named freedom. >> eric: and medical device 2.3% tax? >> we're not paying for healthcare right now above what you are paying for your premiums. the average family cost them $2200 a year, to cover people that are uninsured. you are going to pay a couple more cents for the burger or pay thousands of a dollar in order to insure people that are not insured today. every time the insurance gets it paid for. >> eric: this goes across the whole economy. no matter what you buy, your prices are going up? >> we had bobby flay on the business network. he is worried about the costs. human chef. how he is going to do it suck it up or pass it on the consumer. everybody is worried about this. this wasn't talked about in the beginning. nobody said in the beginning, now what, this small businesses will have to go out of business. all we heard was the good stuff we're going to take care of the people that never had it. at the end of the day it's costing us more. >> eric: the original healthcare law was 7,000 pages long. mitch mcconnell put out it's up to 20,000 pages. what else do we know t
frantically looking to rejigger the tax. i stress, not eliminating the tax. maybe focus on the rich. take 20% of their dough. hard to say. this much is not. it is going to happen. because the government needs the dough. if they still want to get european union dough. it gets weird and complicated. desperate to stay in the euro club. does this ring a bell? it should. no one is taxing the bank holdings, thanks to obamacare, they are going after the other assets. 3.7% on investment sales larger than 100,000 grand. the next time you try to sell your house, trust me. you will hit the roof. think about that. tax not on your income, earned or unearned but your assets. what you have, what you own. your tangible assets. home here, bank account there. is there difference? no. no difference between american government taxing you for medical devices and what it deems as a medical insurance plan. taxing you not on what you make but what you have. the stuff you attain through life of work no, matter when you work or how much you made when you work. stuff you got now. to government, it sees that y
agenda in this -- in this town when what he's doing is redefining terms. so, he's redefining tax reform not the traditional word of tax reform, meaning you lower rates and use that to close loopholes to lower rates. he wants to use it to say, well, we're going to close loopholes to pay for more spending. >> congressman tom price and why no budget. what was his explanation, why he has no budget. the senate has a budget and the house has a budget. >> again, he had a very difficult time answering that question. >> what did he say? >> i mean, it was like, look, you've listened to him. he's got no substantive answer when tom price-- >> what did he say, i'm too busy or they're working on it? >> look, it's going to come and avoiding eye contact, a couple of weeks. well, it's late already and he was challenged in the meeting, are you presenting this late on a rope-a-dope effort after we passed the budget that paul ryan is leading us on? it's all of those sorts of things and here this was a big attempt to try and bring people together. i thought, look, our members respect the presidency and we'r
to include tax expenditures, a large part of our federal expenditures in the tax code. and the military also needs to be part of deficit reduction. we also need to do this in a select way. these across-the-board sequestration cuts are not how we as well govern. we should be specific as to which programs are priority programs and which programs can be cut. i think that's where we are trying to find common ground between the democrats and republicans. there are discussions taking place among my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to try to find that common area of agreement. >> shannon: we all as americans wish you the best. i want to give you a chance to respond to criticism from jeff sessions. he says the senate budget, proposed and voted on by the committee is full of gimmicks and raises taxes by $1 trillion and increases spending and has no plan and makes no claim to ever balance the budget? >> well, the democratic budget from the senate -- it has more deficit reduction than the simpson-bowles proposal that we all thought was the right framework, just 2 years ago, so i think it is seriou
cautious proposal, one to one ratio spending cuts and new tax revenue. with all the coverage focusing on these plans, what you wouldn't know a third proposal, one that constitute as much stronger weight to the winding conservatism of the ryan budget. that alternative is the budget proposed a congressional progressive caucus which would add $2 trillion in new spending to create jobs and pay for it by raising taxes on the wealthy and corporations. the entire discussion about budgeting has been anchored on the right by all the attention of the ryan budget has gotten. even though it is billed as the democratic alternative this is for. the murray budget is in some ways closer to the ryan plan when you take the progressive proposal into account. check this out. the ryan budget would cut nondefense discretion airin funding, education transportation, other social services, 16% over ten years. according to the citizens for tax justice. end -- other end of the spectrum, progressive caucus budget which would increase that spending by nearly 28%. you may expect that murray's center left democrati
and half through tax hikes. senator corker, let me start with you will senate republicans accept a tax increase if you get serious entitlement reform and cuts? >> i think senate republicans and all republicans want to see a 75 year solution to entitlements and i think republicans are joined in wanting to see tax reform so to the extent that generates revenues and how that is scored obviously that will be debated as we move ahead but i think all of us understand the real issues driving the deficit is in our o country are the entitlements. we want to see these available for generations to come. >> chris: but real quickly you you understand the price for entitlement reform in any deal would be a tax increase. would you buy that and what do you think are the prospects there willle be a deal sometime before this summer? >> well, again, i think there by the way is a chance on a deal. i know the president is saying the right things and we have an opportunity over the next four to five months i think that we will know when the president is serious by virtue of a process that is set up where he
of control debt, out of control taxes, out of control regulation, that's the only other period. president reagan came in facing that stagnation and he implemented policies the exact opposite of barak obama. in fact, it's interesting. 79 to 83, economic growth was 0.8%. today it's 0.8%. for the exact same period. because obama didn't learn the lesson from reagan that if you want to turn the economy around, you cut taxes, you reduce spending, you reduce the debt and don't send regulators like locusts to destroy small businesses and jobs. [ applause ] do you know if president obama had followed the reagan policies and we had seen the identical growth that president reagan saw inheriting the same lousy economy barak obama did, do you know that today we would have 7 million additional new jobs in america? let me help make that a little more concrete. 7 million new jobs is the equivalent of giving a job to every man, woman and child in chicago, houston, philadelphia, and boston. that's what we're talking about. [ applause ] and the stagnation under president obama doesn't fall uniformly. listen
the latest. remember the payroll tax hike and higher taxes on investment income? the financial hit, $317 billion. cadillac tax on high cost insurance plans, another $111 billion for that one. a mandate that employers provide health care or pay a fee, tax on that $106 billion. annual tax on health insurance providers, $102 billion. then there is the individual mandate, $55 billion for that one. we're not done. tax on medical device makers, $29 billion. the list goes on and on. more than 20 new taxes and fees totaling a trillion bucks. that is doubling the estimate just a few years ago. folks, it ain't over. it could send employers over the edge. the real shocker, i talked to a lot of accountants of companies -- they didn't know about this. it's like peeling that onion. >> right. you saw the stack of papers, 20,000 pages of obamacare regulations, it's seven feet, three inches tall, nine inches call of kobe bryant. 66 dollar per person fee. employers are looking at this. it came out this week so it's not something they carefully prepared for. this being more than anything illustrates what t
to strike, which is part tax increases and part this alleged spending cuts, nobody is really for that and too vague and also used the word gut g-u-t when it refers to medicare i think is the beginning of the 2014 mid term elections, where the democrats are going to come after the republicans and paul ryan on gutting or slashing, their words, medicare. and i think that that action, you see it in the-- the democratic congressional campaign committee twitter feed is really where the democrats are headed. >> jon: when the president says a balanced budget is not his goal, is that his words? >> i think most reporters are used to hearing this and bush must have said it at every state of the union and and it's sort of boiler plate when people promise it. i think expecting the president to say he wants a balanced budget is putting it in the republican paradigm. most liberals don't think it's the short-term goal. the goal is to avoid austerity and keep the economy moving and in the long run balance the budget, but it's not a short-term goal. >> jon: what about the interview, juan? step
happened in benghazi because hillary clinton's e-mail has been hacked. >> brian: it's taxes versus entitlements on capitol hill today. republicans and democrats present their budget plans. but which one is better for your wallet? if you like a light wallet, one might be better. if you want within filled with money, one might be better. >> steve: i want the george castanza wallet. tv anchors are supposed to be ready, aren't they? >> we have breaking news to report to you. fox 54 has just learned that a huntsville news anchor is being proposed on live -- right now. (scream). >> brian: that is great. >> steve: oh, man. meet the anchor who got the surprise of her life on live television. >> brian: that is awesome. >> steve: it is. "fox & friends" hour two for tuesday starts right now. that's why you got to be really careful. we're very trusting of the people behind the scenes who put things in the teleprompter. >> what's funny is it took her a second, you know, fox anchor is being proposed -- oh it came out and then she realized. that's what happens with breaking news. >> brian: you se
the socialist bernie sanders from vermont who is independent. the cpc wants a 49% federal income tax rate on top earners. they want half. and they don't want many deductions for those folks. also the congressional progressive caucus wants even more government spending. 2.5 trillion more, on, quote, job creation. another 2.2 trillion on things like science, energy, the environment and education. also the cpc does not want to cut entitlements. and, wants to give unemployed americans 99 weeks of cash compensation. nearly two years. the question is what does president obama think of the congressional progressive caucus? my opinion, he likes it i don't think the president believes that crew is fanatical because they want what he wants. by the way, the far left kooks do want to cut one thing, defense spending. they want to bring that back down to 2006 level. somewhere in iran is cheering. there comes a point when americans are going to have to decide what country, what kind of country they want. even taking half of what affluent americans earn, feds couldn't possibly afford what the far left wants to

even though republicans have given up $600 billion six weeks ago and saying you got your taxes and now we want to see some spending cuts. are those two positions in concrete and intractable? >> i don't think so. the only time i would flatten the tax code and i think that is a good idea, by the way, to eliminate a lot of the loopholes and deductions but what do you do with the money? i would like to put some on the debt and buy down tax rates particularly the corporate rate to create jobs. we need economic growth. for me to o do that he has to embrace entitlement reforms. social security and medicare are going bankrupt. a demographic change in the country. 10,000 baby boomers retire a day. medicare and social security are unsustainable. if the president will help me save medicare and social security and refor reform medii will flatten the tax code but not going to do one without the other. i'm looking for the biggest spending cut in the history of the country along with reforms to save medicare and social security from bankruptcy. then i will do revenue. >> mike: for the first time sinc

i'm listening but we've got to begin this talk by raising taxes. and then they got into some policy. >>alisyn: let's hear more about exactly what was said in these meetings. >> one of my favorite moments was when one of my colleagues said mr. president, it is not all that helpful to have you publicly questioning our motives, publicly accusing us of wanting to eviscerate medicaid, for example, simply because we want to call for reform or block grants. >> and his answer was? >> i don't speak nearly as badly about you as some of you do about me. >> who asked that? >> it was jon [inaudible] i thought he did a great job in answering the question. he was deferential in the way he did it. the point needed to be make. the president's response was unsatisfactory. it overlooked the fact that most of the time we criticize him but we generally don't question his motives. we don't question whether or not he generally cares about the american people. that is a problem. that is a difference. >>steve: you can tell the vicious attacks over the last couple of years really hurt. okay, he's up here now
proposals, both very different on things like tax hikes and entitlement spending and neither likely to get enough support to make it to the president's desk in its current form. house speaker john boehner says he's at work toward balancing the budget going forward, but that's that washington's spending problems have to be addressed. >> when you get down to the bottom line, the president believes that we have to have more taxes from the american people and we're not going to get very far. if the president doesn't believe that the goal ought to be the balance of the budget over the next ten years, i'm not sure we'll get very far. >> peter doocy with the news in washington for us tonight. do lawmakers sound hopeful that the government shoulddown can be avoided? >> harris, none of the lawmakers we heard from today actually threatened to shut down the government at the end of the march and the focus seems to have shifted past the upcoming deadline to extend that short-term budget resolution and on to a more grand bargain, but speaker boehner says he doesn't know if democrats and republicans can

. in 1950 the population of detroit, 1.8 million and today 700,000 which means that tax revenues have plummeted. so if raising taxes is not the answer then of course you have to lower spending and today the mayor said that everyone is going to have to give a little. listen. >> bottom line here is that we must stop fighting each other. we must start to work together and so, i'm happy that now i've got teammates. i've got partners that can help me do some of the things that need to be done in our city. >> reporter: of course, if they can't work it out, detroit would likely have to file for bankruptcy, which that would be the largest u.s. city ever to do so, harris. >> harris: you know, part of what we've watched in that city is their own internal politics and workings keeping them from going forward, in some cases. the city council, i understand is not exactly embracing this plan to go forward. >> no, and the city council had threatened to sue and late today decided against that, but the city council president still called the mayor a quitter for agreeing to this plan. i mean, you thin

's the thing. they were ready to tax everyone. i don't care if you would ten euro zone in the bank or a million euros in the bank, they were going to hit you with this tax. obviously that scares the heck out of people. >>alisyn: luckily it was shot down, that plan, because it was so controversial. how did europe react to all of this? >> it's interesting because i don't think the europeans were ready for this to happen. they hatched the plan over last weekend, the i.m.f., e.c.b. and the european union and i think they thought they had the votes. this puts them in a precarious position. the finance minister is in russia. russia gave them a bailout last year, low-interest bailout, almost three billion euros. a lot of this money belongs to russian businesses. but a lot of it legitimate businesses too. the bottom line is i don't know if that was supposed to make it politically correct to go in and steal money from everyone, including regular citizens. >>brian: the russians look like the compassionate ones. it's not fair to the people of cyprus to do this. they say that private gas company offered to

. and of course, others more conservative who said they're just not going to raise taxes. we saw that reflected to some extent in the op-ed that house speaker john boehner wrote today, in which he really called on the president to come forward more with entitlements, to be willing to give up more on entitlements, that of course is the other big sticking point in these negotiations. i can tell you, andrea, that according to a senior administration official, the president is planning to have more of these meetings, once he returns from israel. apparently during this so-called charm offensive, which really started last week and continued into this week. a number of republicans did express a desire to have more meetings. so in terms of what got accomplished, everyone agrees this was really a first step. and nothing major was accomplished, nothing tangible. however, there is a sense that there will be future conversations and that there is some potential room there for movement. >> andrea? >> and chris icillizza, we're told now that. >>> amy was right, supporting it and is one thing. going out and s

this a poll tax, the historic method of blocking african-americans from voting. he said this this mr. barber down there in north carolina, he stayed in part, "they designed a maze of frustrating visits to the government agencies with costly administrative fees that citizens who have no car and no driver's license must navigate and pay to exercise their constitution a right to vote." what would be your reaction to that? >> well, we disagree with reverend barber. i believe, first off you we have a very extensive absentee balloting vote by mail system, those who have difficulty getting to a location that may be able to provide a valid i.d. may want to use that choice where an i.d. would not be an issue to begin w reverend barber and those who are opposed to this bill are doing it i think largely on ideological bounds or grounds because the data in other state, if you take a look at the state of georgia, where they said hundreds of thousands of i.d.s would have to be issued, there have been 27,000, a state roughly the same size as north carolina. >> all right. thom tillis you speaker of the hous
